Now you're talkin', brother. That's what I like to read. Remembrances of the good old days...before AIDS...before heroin.

I may have been there. I definitely saw them there a few times in 1974. Once it was rained out. We took the blotters we had been saving for weeks. Sitting in the stands wondering "where's the music?"..."when the voices of the storm sound like a crowd."

Then the parking lot... four other Dead-heads crammed into my '68 Camaro.

I consider Sunday, December 5, 1971, Felt Forum (NYC) my first Dead show. Listening to (the WNEW 102.7 FM simulcast), and taping every second...from the great N.R.P.S. set to the long spaces between the Dead's songs. Six hours, four 90-minute cassettes. I still consider that one of their best, and think that it was all downhill from there.

The first time I was at a show was March of '73 at the Nassau Coliseum. A big disappointment. Pigpen had just died, I could barely see the band and people were getting busted left and right for smoking pot. But I do remember learning one new thing: that Bobby was the front man. I had just naturally assumed it would be Jerry. I was 16, and still 8 months before my first trip...

~On This Day In GRATEFUL DEAD History~

Jerry Garcia's Birthday and I was there.

Huge Party at Roosevelt Stadium, 36 years ago when I was 17-18. I would turn 18 the next day.

I remember it like it was yesterday. Sue and I went to this show. Sue was my 20-21 year old girlfriend...the good ol' days of 73' when there was NO HIV AIDS and all the girls were into free love....if your dinky got stinky, they had a shot for it and you were good to go...dem days is over'...Sue and I had a great time...before, during and after the show...yum.

Jerry was all smiles at this show...his playin' is solid, professional, and hits the spot. Jerry had a great time at this show, we showed him all the love we had. Happy Birthday brother.

I remember the GRATEFUL DEAD nailing this show...we were all blown away. The Band was pretty good too, they played durin' the day, then the sun went down and the GRATEFUL DEAD came out.

This is back in the day when the DEAD still had American Flags and US Marine Stickers on their equipment oh, and "DEATH FROM ABOVE" U.S. Airborne stickers too...lmao.

For all collectors of 1973 GRATEFUL DEAD this show is a must have...for two reasons, 1. magnificent 73' show and 2. it's Jerry G's B-Day.

NYC crowds always seemed to energize the GRATEFUL DEAD. The Best shows outside of Frisco were in NYC or the immediate NYC area this is one of them.

I recommend using your EQ during playback of most of the shows on the IA, this one included.

Windows Media Player has a 10 band EQ and SRS WOW effects that enhance the sound.

Here's one way to stream/download this show:

The IA recommends users of Windows XP view this web-page with RealPlayer.

RealPlayer is a free media player you can download at

Using RealPlayer to view this webpage, click the VBR M3U link to open the songs in the Playlist.

If your Playlist is not open, open it by clicking the Playlist icon at the lower right hand corner of RealPlayer.

Once the songs are in the Playlist, double click the song to play it, then click the record button at the lower left hand corner of Realplayer to record it.

When the red line reaches the other end click the stop button to download the song. Your song is in the RealPlayer Downloads folder.

Repeat these steps for each song.

Eat, Drink, Be Merry and Listen to the GRATEFUL DEAD.

Thanks for the LOVE from 1973.

PS: I think the DEAD were already in Novato, at the ranch firing off their automatic weapons back in 73. Anyone got a copy of the Angela Davis and Pigpen poster holding automatic rifles and shotguns on the front porch?

Peace and Love.

PSS: remember to click on the "DeadLists Project" link and collect the poster and ticket for this's JERRY'S BIRTHDAY!

I guess it's just too hard to let us hear the show as it was
